The Email Notifications section configures email notifications for backup starts, completions, errors and if no backups are completed in a set number of days. This setting also allows you to customize notification emails and the email return address.

Send notification if no completed backups in X days

[Example: 30] - Configure the maximum number of days (set to 0 to disable) that may pass with no new backups created before sending an error notification email. Alert notification emails will only be sent once every 24 hours at most.

Use BackupBuddy's Scheduling to automatically back up your site regularly.
